Media comment: We can’t build back better without a partnership between government and business

6 October 2021

Dear editor,

A genuine and accountable partnership between government and business is needed to change the UK economic model and tackle the country’s productivity woes.

Investors hold companies to account over their business strategy to ensure they survive and thrive, with some leading industrial organisations modelling the risks and opportunities over the next 50 years to secure investment and drive returns. If the government is realistic about changing the UK’s economic model, perhaps government could take a leaf out their book and work in partnership with businesses to create a long-term productivity strategy for the UK.

Yours sincerely,
